The entire gathering, of more than 50 people, was placed in custody.

Some believe the police did the right thing.

One tweep wrote, "Why do have to go this far? Is it lack of understanding of the situation or people are just stubborn?"

Another said, "Total disregard for the law, swift prosecution must follow."

Other tweeps saw the funny side and believed the groom's side chick or neighbours who weren't invited had something to do with snitching on the couple.

Either way, it's terrible their big day had to end this way.

Mzansi's 21-day lockdown has been in place for a little over a week now.

There are fears that the lockdown might be extended, particularly if our infection numbers keep increasing.
